Publisher's Summary

Since high school everyone thought Jake Bender would end up behind bars; after all, he comes from a long line of bad boys. He spent years away from the place he called home. When he finally comes back, everyone thinks he's just a punk kid all grown up who's now running a dive bar called The Night Club. What they don't know is he heads up a special task force that cleans up neighborhoods and makes them safe again.
Stormy Ryan has always felt more comfortable with her books than with people. She loves to spend her days within the pages of her books. When her second-hand bookstore is robbed for the third time in as many months, her employees quit, leaving her to run the shop on her own. With the pressure of having to deal with her shop and people, not to mention the declining neighborhood, she is at the end of her rope. When closing up her shop late one night, she is held up, and the neighborhood bad boy saves her, putting both of them at the forefront of a psychotic's obsession.
Being bad has never looked so good.

Well worth reading despite triggers

For a while, I was uncomfortable with some triggers. However, the story is well written and we can get past it. Not going into any spoilers here. The plot moves along very well, and the characters are complex and easily believable.
DMcC is the perfect audio performer for this job. I can pretty much guarantee you that I, personally, would not have gone thru this book beginning to end with no skipping except for his voice interpretations. And that would have been a waste.
Thanks to AudioBook Blast for making it possible for me to be gifted with this book.

I wanted to like this. .....

One of the worst written stories I have ever read/ listened to. The storyline could have been interesting, but the immaturity of the writing kept this from being a good read.
I can't really find too much positive to say so I won't elaborate. I wanted to like this, but alas, it is not to be?
